“The Dude” Abides

“The Dude” Abides

It wouldn’t be a stretch for you to think that I’m referring to the one and only “Dude”, that’s right, the White Russian drinking, carpet stealing, Dude from LA. But in fact, I’m talking about one of Mikrotik’s latest releases: The Dude Network Monitoring System.

The Dude network monitor is a new application by MikroTik which can dramatically improve the way you manage your network environment. It will automatically scan all devices within specified subnets, draw and layout a map of your networks, monitor services of your devices and alert you in case some service has problems.

If you happen to be using Mikrotik routers, The Dude also features seamless integration, allowing for a more unified network management platform. Best of all, The Dude is entirely FREE, thanks Mikrotik!

Graphing Tranzeo Wireless SNMP Stats Using Cacti

If you are trying to graph the link and noise levels of your Tranzeo wireless equipment on Cacti and are running into problems, changes are that you need to download this graph file TranzeoCactiGraph.xml.

Loading this file into Cacti will allow you to create Tranzeo specific graphs for any wireless Tranzeo equipment that may be deployed on your network. Simply make sure that SNMP is turned on in the Tranzeo control panel and you should be ready to start receiving the wireless statistics in Cacti.
